[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the background of this photo you can see Mdina the Silent City, a very ancient and historic one dating back to the Phoenicians and reached it's peak in 850 AD, when taken by the Serachens.
It is very much photographed from many different point of views, usually accompanied by the sunshine and colours, the Maltese landscape offers. See my other post
The Silent City
This time while on a drive to Attard a different ocassion was presented to me to shoot this subject in a different mood.
In this late afternoon, suddenly thick clouds covered the sky, darkening the place and threatening with heavy rain.
So here is that moment on this March afternoon shared with you.

Adjusted in Curves and Levels.
Played a bit in Selective Colours,
Filterd in NeatImage and added a frame.

Hi Salvu,
Excellent picture. The small red flowers against the backdrop of the castle and the stormy sky make this one dramatic. Well done.

Hallo Salvu.
What a beautiful place is Malta...Thanks to show us!

I like this shot for this dramatic sky and the colour foreground!!!
Well done

Nice composition with the dramatic sky, well done!

Quel ciel menacant ...!!!
Et quel rouge pour ces fleurs...!
Bravo !

Great atmospheric sky. Nice composition and POV as well.

I liked this photo since the composition and the way you split the sky and land proportions in relation to the subject's importance. The colours are nice, although I would like to see the original pix. I like the way you colour corrected it. Nice one.

Hello Salvu,
Very good contrast and colors. Also the composition, and a very interesting picture of nature. Congratulate.

PS: poinds tomorrow
